Pro Real time difficulties

Question

Hi All

Ive been using ProRealTime software recently. It was initially working fine both in my IG Demo and Live (real money) accounts. However since this week started (Monday 10.6.19) neither IG accounts seem to be taking the orders triggered from the ProRealTime software. The Trading Systems are up and running with ProRealTime in the trading tabs but making no progress at all, ie not placing any orders. Its like ProReal Time is not talking to IG.

Ive tried stopping alternatively demo PRT trading systems and live PRT trading systems in case there was some compatibility issue between the two accounts, but this action has made no change to my situation. I can perfectly backtest all the trading systems so I could see where the orders should have been placed for the past few days, only that they did not take place in the IG accounts.

Any ideas out there?

Thanks

If you look in prorealtimes order list

do you have any rejected orders?

Another thing 

The min size can be different in demo  

If min size is 2 and you have 1 in order then nothing will happen

Hi Kodiak

Thanks for your suggestions

No rejected orders. All tabs in orders list are empty. 

All orders are above min size

Well probably something IG can fix?

For me its no problem i have a small size (0,2) running live on DOW and all trades are working

I've been using the demo account for a while and had a lot of intermittent crashing issues where I have to login again and again, plus had some 'unexpected errors... call helpdesk messages' messages.... bit worrying as it stopped me from closing positions! Anything like that happened to you guys?

    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted. 
    • The 20, 50 and 100 DMA curves on the 'daily' timeframe are sloping upwards which is extremely bullish and this trend has been very nice indeed.  When I talk about 'Strongest Trending Assets' in my other threads then I am suggesting those that a lot of traders do not spot but they exist and are available not only to trade on IG's platform but one must be able to spot and identify them.
